Cabbage Scrambled Eggs Coconut Stir Fry, Kerala Recipe

Cabbage & scrambled eggs, I find this an awesome combination…

When it comes to cabbage, I only like Kerala style thoran or stir fry with coconut. Once I added scrambled eggs while cooking cabbage & felt it was the best addition to the cabbage. I stir fried the cabbage with scrambled eggs & coconut, a very simple yet delicious vegetarian dish.
